Personally, I am very happy that there is $5.50 2-day event. I'd like to play more of them and even 4-5 days events (marathon). But I will not register if I have a plans tomorrow because it's just silly.
You can easily have plans that can change for significant money. $8 is not enough to cancel a tee time or lunch engagement.

I don't mind two day events, just play down to a final for the L's. There's no point to end them after only 8 hours. Either speed them up early, or extend for two more hours.

Yep. They're not very transparent. Dirty.

Yes, in this thread. They are still advertising it on their site however. I archived it just in case they try to edit it later. http://archive.is/8YLe0

Technically, they still owe watches to this year's winners. Enticement, fraud statutes, etc...good luck to anyone chasing them up on it. :-)

Re: SCOOP 2017

The guarantees for the phases are they supposed to increase? The prize pool has to be way above now?

Re: SCOOP 2017

where are all the sats to the 10k main? There are so few scheduled, and the biggest is just a 10 seat guarantee? also can you add ~$300 buyin 36 player WTA double shootout sngs? Those ran frequently in previous years and are fun/good format of satellites because there's no need for stalling and less opportunity for collusion since they're WTA.

can you also consider adding one or two turbo 1k phase 1? I still haven't gotten a stack through

finally, +1 to total KO being a total garbage format and shame on stars for sneakily raking rebuys.

Re: SCOOP 2017

Question about satellites. I know for satellites to the bigs, bountybuilders, special tournaments etc... if you win a seat before the tournament starts which is almost never for certain tournaments, you can unreg it and get tournament dollars.


I looked and there are lot of satellites to scoop events such as 11, 55, 109, 530+ etc. It says if you win a seat to tourney already started, then you will get seated which is normal for all tournaments.


It mentions if you win a seat before tourney stars, and if you unregister, you will receive a ticket. First off, does that mean its not tournament dollars and thus an actual ticket? Thus this is different from the satellites to the bigs, bounty builders etc? So that means if you win a ticket such as a $11 scoop or $109 or $530 ticket, you could use this ticket for any 11 dollar, 109 or 530 etc events later on right? Because this wouldn't make any sense for those big buyin events like $2100+ buyins because assuming a person wins one of these tickets multiple times etc... then how could they use it since these big buyin events only happen at scoop etc. Seems very confusing when it says you get a ticket. But when looking at those big and bounty builder satellites, there is no mention of this and im sure you get tournament dollars assuming you win multiple seats to those things or you already registered to a big event and win a seat in a satellite to the same one etc...

Re: SCOOP 2017

Hi Luke

I think its good idea to let players know somewhere on phase 1 lobby that the $11 phase blind are reverted back to 500/1000 on phase two, i wouldn't have gambled as much @ last level on blind level 800/1600 if i knew this.
